Fisher&Paykel Icon+ Smiley face?
#1
Hi~

I use the Fisher&Paykel Icon+ I've had it around a month. I noticed a smiley face icon appeared on the top of the display window. I looked in the book and googled and can not figure out what it means. I will call the place tomorrow if it's important but I'm super curious about it now.

Thanks for any answers :-)

Which icon+ do you have? Novo, premo, or auto? I haven't noticed it on mine yet.

It may have something to do with compliance. I remember seeing a smiley in the settings but I can't remember where.

Either compliance or leaks. Probably nothing to do with having a good AHI. Would be nice if it was, though.

Hi LuckyDucky
I asked Lincare (where I got my machine) it's telling you the machine is properly working and no leaks.

Lincare is wrong as usual! Never believe what a DME tells you, they seem to be the least informed people I have ever dealt with.

I have been using the Icon for years, two different versions, I have the clinical manual and it clearly states that the Smiley face is for compliance only, that's why you did not see it until thirty days had past. It's set to standard insurance definition of compliance.
